Yeah.  We'd make xen_dma_map_page() use xen_exchange_memory to replace
the underlying page with something matching the device's requirements. 
That would be fairly straightforward for kernel and vmapped pages, but
it gets pretty complex if the page is mapped into userspace (partly
because of the need to use rmap to find all the user mappings, and
partly because I don't know what the locking/atomicity requirements
would be).
